The sacrifice Andualem and others are paying must be shared


The Woyanne junta in Ethiopia continues to commit gross injustice against Ethiopians with {www:impunity}. Meles and gang are not paying any price for their crimes. That must stop, and it can be stopped only when a large number of Ethiopians say enough. Woubshet Taye, Debebe Eshetu, Andualem Arage, Eskinder Nega and all the others who have been arrested had the opportunity to go into exile like the rest of us. But they chose to stay in the country and scarify themselves for the freedom of all Ethiopians, as did thousands before them. Their sacrifices need to be shared by the rest of us. All Ethiopians have the moral obligation to join them in solidarity and say BEKA (enough).

Suggested immediate actions for Ethiopians inside the country:

1. Boycott Woyanne-owned businesses
2. Take your money out of Woyanne-owned banks
3. Disable Woyanne-owned buildings and factories
4. Get organized and be prepared for tougher actions

Those of us in the Diaspora can take the following actions immediately:

1. Declare a general economic boycott against the Woyanne regime, including the boycott of Ethiopian Airlines.

2. Isolate, {www:ostracize} and confront all Woyanne cadres and their hodam supporters we find at social events, restaurants, places of worship, etc.

3. Stop fighting each other and focus on Woyanne and only on Woyanne.

We owe it to heroic Ethiopians like Debebe Eshetu, Andualem Aragie and others to take action. It’s morally {www:reprehensible} to keep silent in the face of such injustice.

    The idea is excellent! Idea don’t turn them into action unless a dedicated organization is established to study (PLAN) the concept from the start to the end and EXECUTE/IMPLEMENT it.

    It is highly recommended to establish a TASK FORCE to head this Project.

    After all BEKA! IS BEKA! Demonstration is good, but it is a soft weapon. Civil resistance means DISOBEY PHYSICALLY and SABOTAGE ECONOMICALLY every thing that SUPPORT the despotic REGIME.

    Those 7 points above are good starting points to this end.

  3. Andinet on

    The Woyanne mafias are committing inhuman atrocities in Ethiopia. They control the army, the air force, the police, the blood thirsty Agazie, and the notorious secret police in order to quell any kind of uprising in the country. Let’s do peaceful demonstrations in front of the White house and congress. At this time the spineless Obama and the American administration might listen to our case.

  4. Tezibt on

    Lets do everything but lets stop unnecessary stuff like the comment above which says “At this time the spineless Obama and the American administration might listen to our case.”

  5. Those of us in the Diaspora can take the following actions immediately:
    1. Declare a general economic boycott against the Woyanne regime, including the boycott of Ethiopian Airlines.
    2. Isolate, ostracize, and confront all Woyanne cadres and their hodam supporters we find at social events, restaurants, places of worship, etc.
    3. Stop fighting each other and focus on Woyanne and only on Woyanne.
    We owe it to heroic Ethiopians like Debebe Eshetu, Andualem Aragie and others to take action. It’s morally reprehensible to keep silent in the face of such injustice.

    Yes, it is long overdue to boycott woyane businesses. It is an open secret that they are all over camouflaged as restaurants, travel agencies, even our national standard-bearer Ethiopian Airlines is under their unqualified agents control etc.. You do not need an organization to realize these acts of boycott. You just do it as a sign of solidarity to our people. As you do not go shopping to a racist shop owner in you neighborhood do not go also to racist arrogant woyane businesses.
    Their agents are also active in student unions and other social oriented associations with the support of some Aderbei hodam turncoats. People gossip around about it in their social gatherings but no courage to say a spade is a spade.
    Do not have any illusion about the piece of land or business licenses they promise you or the good times and parties to enjoy when in Addis. Addis alone is not Ethiopia and Ethiopia has almost eighty million people.
    We are in a free society and have the right to give our opinions and demonstrate our will. Let us give few minutes of our time a day and think of our people who are on the forefront confronting those cruel and arrogant woyanes and their stooges. It is a moral duty of all freedom loving Ethiopians to show their solidarity to our people who are in big prison.
    You do not need to search long to find out what happens with all dictators who were overthrown by the mighty blow of people’s power? They packed their gold and dollars and wither away living their hodams and agents exposed! Therefore, turncoats and hodams it is not yet too late to reassess your positions and come to your senses.
    God bless Ethiopia and its people!

  6. yes, it’s true that we have to take individual responsibility and have to react aggressively against weyane everywhere. at the same time lets us at least support the struggle financially as we should support independent medias like ESAT to the minimum, as our madness is nothing if it doesn’t supported by a practical action.

  7. There is no use writing on web sites how disgusted we are about the atrocities of the ethno-fascist woyane.

    It is time for all justice and freedom loving Ethiopians,in the name of Ethiopians as a whole to take action as suggested above. At least most of us who live in free and democratic countries in the west can afford to give one day of our lives to go out and to demonstrate in front of the white house or Downing street or Paris or wherever we happen to be.

    The opposition parties in the diaspora carry a lot on their shoulders. They need to be responsible and have a duty to air the suffering of the Ethiopian people to the world. what are they waiting for. what is their role in this. what are they here for if they can’t even organise people for a demonstration.

  8. Atakilti on

    Let’s us not rush to judgement. We all are here thousands of miles away and all truthful facts do not arrive here on timely fashion. I don’t really know Ato Andualem but I have read several articles written by Eskinder on this or other similar websites. Some of his articles made sense and others the jury is still our for me to pass any judgment. He seems a man who believes in peaceful transformation of a society which is very paramount for a society like ours. So in his articles that attracted my attention, he seemed a peaceful man. But I am here thousands of miles away and I have decided to wait until I hear the details of what he is charged with. Chaos and anarchism are not far away from the doorsteps of our society and it is a proven fact that there extremely hateful forces that are hatching harm to our peoples and country. It is my wish that this gentleman released on bail right away until his case is decided by the court. I don’t think all of a sudden he has become a self-blowing jihadist working for Al-Qaeda or Al-Shabab. Like I said I don’t really know about the others and let’s wait until we hear the details.

  9. Mote lewoyanes on

    Atakliti #9,
    With out a shadow of a doubt the most majority of Ethiopians know that Eskinder and the other three are innocent and the real criminals are Meles and his thugs. After 20 years of power abuse of looting, killing and selling the country’s fertile land…who in the world with the right mind think that there is a fair justice in Ethiopia under these lawless woyanes? Give me a break!

  10. The arrest of the true Ethiopians by TPLF regime is not going to be the last. If the Ethiopian people let them to abuse them as they did in the past 20 long agonizing years they will do it over and over. To neel down and begging the freedom that was taken by this group is not going to be given without the fight. It is about time to unite ourselves and reclaim the peoples power, the majority political and economic power. Leaving the fight for tomorrow or a day after is just extending the suffering by another day. Let us narrow our differences and work for common purpose that helps sppeed up the freedom of Ethiopian people. We all have to understand that sacrifice will be inevitable. But the sacrifice that is paid today is a dawnpayment for a better tomorrow.
    Our political leaders upto this time could not understand the urgency of all purpose struggle.From boycotting to travel to Ethiopia all the way upto not buying Ethiopian goods here in the State has to be considered.We are the one who are pupming oxygen to the rgime that can not breath in his own. We may not acchieve one hundered percent participiation, but even acchieving fifty percent will be significant victory. Thank you commentator for identifying some of the forms of struggle against this cruel shameless regime.

  11. Babb,
    This incident just happen although some might have been anticipated its coming. I myself have been calling for massive demonstration geared to expose weyane state sponsored terror against Ethiopians to take place across the world. Although this is our objective we have to understand organizing events takes preparation and time, therefore it is too early to blame leadership role at the moment. I do expect though in the coming days decision makers will take note of the various inputs in many forums to come up with the appropriate course of action.

    Until then the rank and supporters need to take this matter seriously and do our at most to weaken the regime’s strangle hold upon our people. At least, we can show our solidarity with the suffering by boycotting government owned business as pointed out above.

  12. Aha!

    That was a very nice slap well done bro! If I may join your discourse in this I think we also need to engage all so-called teletafi ethnic party officials reminding them that the decisive moment is here. We need them to know that they have a role to play at this moment: either to be with the side of justice and the suffering or to be with the side of weyane clique and suffer the consequences of their action at later time.

    We need to press these officials that the weyane boss and his inner core has already put Ethiopia under police state and the so called “anti terrorist law” is but a prelude to a marshal law. It is our duty to communicate this truth effectively to these parties as well as to various government officials. Beside the opposition supporters need to be responsible in weighing our opinions in these forums.

  13. Mulugheta T. on

    Hi Elias (you are great!!!!),

    How long are we going to fear Woyane. Fear is not a solution. We must be ready to pay the price for freedom. Arabs are showing us the way how. Medrek, and all the other political parties in Ethiopia must take the lead and guide the youth during demonstrations. The youth of Ethiopia is ready for change but they should be lead by courageous opposition leaders in Addis Ababa. The youth has no fear but is full of hesitation. Thereby, the time for a regime change has never been optimum than today. The current situation in Ethiopia and the revolutions in Africa have created favourable conditions for demonstrations – in Addis Ababa or elsewhere- to succeed. So, we need only to start the first move and after that it will ceate its own momentum and then nobody in the world will stop it.
    And one thing must know Meles and co., that is: if the youth starts a demonstration, then you, along with all your families, will all end in Ethiopian courts (like Mubarak of Egypt). We will never let you go without being punished legally.
    Let us work together and put our differnces aside and throw this beggar-regime once and for all.

    Happy New Year.

  14. Yonas # 14 mentioned the name “BEN” is that not the classical example of a turncoat? Yea, I saw his masterwork of serving his masters in damage control propaganda against a controversial new farms policy that has led to a political clampdown in a remote lowland region of Ethiopia and which BBC did an investigative report. Is that not a shame how this Assama “Ben” or whatever his name is more or less put the poor farmers on the spot forcing them to go along with his opportunist and criminal interview? What do you expect from the poor farmers interviewed to answer from agents like BEN who are accompanied with state security people armed to the teeth and standing just few meters away from the interviewees? Just say yes, to whatever question he asked. Answer only that what the agent wants to hear. Moreover, he unashamedly presented his “master work” on the internet. Shame on you turncoat!
    I remember also how he did an interview with his master Melles. You see how this pseudo journalist constructs his interviews. For one it is actually meant a broadcast to the few selected to understand. Secondly, the language he uses is meant for the few selected ones with knowledge of English. The guramayle or amhengli jebrish (Amharic English) language is not meant for the masses. I am not saying that there are no people who understand English but if you take the ratio of our population to the number of English speakers then it was an effort, which has only a symbolical service of self-gratification.
    Well compatriots, this pig Ben as I said earlier is a classical example of a traitor. He fits to be the future comical Ali for his masters. I certainly do not want to be in his shoes when the time comes! Imagine how his masters save their greedy self, distance themselves from their small puppy “benny” and how “Comical Benny” feels alone and abandoned from his masters!
    BEN come back and win the respect people gave you onetime ago. It is not yet late! Money is not everything. Otherwise, you will end up as “Onanism Ben!” or “Comical Benny!” This appeal goes to all those Comical Benny’s too.
    God bless our people!

  15. Atakilti on

    As a father myself, I am genuinely saddened that Ato Eskinder is not at home raising his toddler child. Children have instinct that tells them that the father they don’t see at home as before has some unpleasant reason behind it. That is why I call Meles and other concerned official should release At Eskinder on bail on humanitarian grounds. They should because this man does not have the attributes of a violent person. He should be provided with means to support himself and his family. I have no knowledge of the other individuals. They may have been wrongfully swayed by elements sitting in their comfy homes here or in Europe convincing these imprisoned individuals with a fantasy of the Arab Spring style uprising. But our country is made of a different set of peculiarities. These so-called opposition groups scattered all over the world are set to commit the same mistakes committed by the leaders and cadres of EPRP in 1976-78. They are on the record for making battle cries of popular uprising. Rise up they shouted!!! The Derg is on its deathbed they screamed!!! They sent tens of thousands of bar-handed of the young generation to their futile deaths. Some of those EPRP became victims of their foul play. And a few other scheming individuals ran for their lives to the bushes and overseas. They wrote books one after another and profited from the blood and futile sacrifice of hundreds of thousands of the cream of the crop of the society. Our country has still to recover from that loss. Sheer martyrdom fantasy will not further the accord but rather create another society sans the precious young. I don’t only have any respect for those groups like Gim/Boat7 and their comrade-in-arms but I despise them. I watched the speech made this Nega thing on this or another website and he left me scratching my head. He could not even express his idea in the language he grew up speaking. Mumbling, babbling, gabbling and sputtering to a land of nowhere!!!! And he wants to tell us that he is set to remove the government by any means necessary including violence while he is sitting here wandering which one he will have for dinner, filet mignon or rib roast!!! Sheer arrogance and hypocrisy !!! Some day he may end writing a book just to profit from the sacrifices of his ‘foot soldiers’. So-called leaders of OLF and ONLF are doing the same thing. They are shooting their ‘big guns’ from Minnesota to cover their army which have been on march to Addis Ababa since 1991 or 1984 or 1973 which ever their tell us to by on any given day. These two have committed crimes against humanity when they killed innocent oil workers and poor Amhara farmers. I am not like them. Atakilti is my name and I don’t favor one Ambasha over the other one because I earn them the old fashion way by making an honest living through hard work. Those few Amharas and Oromos tknow me and can attest to that even though I disagree with them about the current regime back home.

  16. Silence on

    Ato Aha,
    No body understand what your point is .It is all self hatred to wards an ethiopian individual who happen to be not agreeing with your politics.All the rabish words you used reflects what kind personality you have.You choose good web site that fits you to spit out all your ill words but no substance.There are silenced people who are in the middle between Woyane vs Extreem daispora (like you) and trying to create a movement that excludes you and Woyane.

  17. Mulugeta that is a wonderfull Idea so please lead us and we will follow you.Why don’t you fire yourself and ignite the youth movement like Tunsia and trust me You will see a massive youth on the street.But ethiopia never lack an online adviser as you know she badly needs a dooer.

  18. It is not a mistery that the Wayane are afraid from these detained Ethiopians. At the same time they want to warn everybody in
    Ethiopia that they can do anythink in the country. The latest Wikileaks release demonstrates us that the Woyanes has a license from the west and the so called human right organasations to kill and gail anyone in the country. The USA and the Europeans know everything about the criminality of this junta but they are after their interests and do not care about the Ethiopian people. They know that they are bombibg, kidnapping, killing and accusing others for their criminal dids. But they playing their game, they support them to acccuse others and follow the consequence.
    We have to remember always what they did in 2005 elections, the contineous crimes in Gambella, Oromia, Ogadem. The four people killed and accused they were they were preparing to bomb Addis with the help of OLF and Shaibia. USA and Europe know all these but not only they close their eyes but they support them to accuse others since the junta is their stoogie.
    Therefor let us joint our efforts and help each other to get rid of this mafia group, Woyane.
    Then let us first help this detained persons somehow. Let us extend a system to support the one they are in the front and fall victems to this cruel system.
    We have to take action all Ethiopians and Eritreans, since it is these mafia keeping us in conflict.

  19. sancho on

    Sem,
    I admire your passion and love for your beloved country.I also understand your frustration towards this governement though I have a differnce with you .But as soon as you seek Eritreans help to solve ethiopian problem then I strip off all the respect I gave you.All the diferences we have in the country can be dealt accordingly,it is a matter of time.Eritreans let alone the governement ,majority of the people crave for Ethiopia to go to hell.This is not exageration I have Eritrean friends who are very nice to socialize but when it comes to Ethiopia they are all the same and have ill thinking for Ethiopia.

  20. Gezaee H. on

    Dear Ethiopians,

    I respect all of you and I do honestly from my heart love you all. What I says is from my heart here. I do not come here to please anyone or any human being.

    I read brother Ayal sew’s comment with interest; I wish not to be critical of him because I have come to know him how an honourable patriotic Ethiopian he is. But the guidelines he has given are equivalent to what Meles and Cos. are doing. They are accusing everyone who is opposing them without trying to understand the longstanding grievances of Ethiopians on TPLF which includes myself.

    TPLF is hell bent like Mengistu; It has come to believe it is the mightiest entity in Ethiopia which can do anything it wants regardless what Ethiopians are upto. This has been the defacto rule of TPLF. TPLF has refused 100% to hear Ethiopians. I sometimes wonder how people who spend in caves for 17 years, sleeping in the dust with hunger, thrist, sickness, illness, … ended up with such high degree of arrogance. They beleive they have build tall and strong walls which no Ethiopians can shake. In the bible it is written when one becomes so arrogant, adamant, stubborn, stiff necked because of false pretence of invicibility, no one shake me attitude. But the truth, you can not stop change by force. Changing is a natural process like Tsunami, Harrican Katrina,… no man under the sun can stop it. But it is the false pretence of human power that some people think they are in control of everything.

    So I do believe TPLF will crumpled down by its own weight because TPLF is fully, arrogantly, ignorantly, stubbornly, haughtly, rigidly,stupidly making many enemies everyday. TPLF has been working so hard in the past 20 years to make Ethiopians its enemies. There is no time TPLF has every taken or heard of any Ethiopians grievances. TPLF has become a liability thana liberator to The Ethiopian people. I wonder what they want to be and to whom they are working if they are they are throwing everty Ethiopians into custody and selling every inch of Ethiopia and selling every asset of Ethiopia. What do they want? what is that they want to achieve by selling the whole country and by terrorizing the whole nation?

    Did the Tigreans died to downtrode their own citizen? if so why? why TPLF has taken stock of its crimes against the country? why TPLF keep on repeating mistakes all along? why? Are they drunk of power, money, and overwhelmed with false invicibility? I cannot imagine why Meles Zenawi Hijacked the struggle of the poor people to suppress, oppress, repress, subjugage Ethiopians. Whaat is that Meles wanted to achieve by terrorizing his citizen and by selling the whole of land of Ethiopia and by selling every asset the country has ever had? what is he want from Ethiopia? I do not understand.

    But still brother Ayal sew’s action plan is equivalent to Meles’s action plan. It is eye for an eye thing. You cannot address or solve a big problem of Ethiopia by terrorizing any Ethiopian. Meles is terrorizing Ethiopians who oppose him. You wantet to do the same to terrrize Meles’s would be supporters and this including terrorizing the hard working citizens at the Ethiopian airlines? I cannot understand the Ethiopian mindset to be honest. We are devoild of good ideas and that is the reason Meles has been tethering us like his dogs for 20 years. In order to terrorize Meles you wanted to terrorize the would be woyanes real and imaginary? Will the bring peace ? will this really affect Meles? or his rule?

    According to me, these action plan actually will help Meles to muster more supporters. You are trying to make more enemies too because you are angry it does not mean everything you do will get you were you wish to be. Plan of action requires deep thought based on reason than based on emotional drive. This will push many people to support Meles. If the Ethiopian airlines hardworking citizens are affected? would they be happy?

    I know writing here will not get us into Ethiopia. But I think I have better idea than brother Ayal sew’s action plan:

    Here we go:

    1.Stop calling names including woyane, if you have a well planned plan, at least do not scare woyane supporters if you can convince them to hear you. Reason is more powerful than whole criminalizing

    2. Stop this division olf, onlf, woyane, tigrie, gurage, amhara, oromo,…
    3. Mobilize all Ethiopian in your community whereever you are regardless they are oromo or tigrie,amhara,… how to mobilize? tell the truth on the ground. Do not go and deafen people by calling woyane, people are tired of this name including myself.

    4. Then form civilil communities in every communities, the civil communities must comprise all the ethnics. Elect, honest, non rent seeker community leaders from each communities.

    5. The civil leaders from community must coordinate the whole Ethiopian diaspora. I am saying the whole diaspora, not olf, onlf, g7, eprp, I am sayin the entire Ethiopians including the Ethiopian ambassadors in the Ethiopians. If they love their country and their people, they cannot stay away because they are here to serve the nation.

    6. Then It is easy to carry out a peaceful one day revolution, with no killing, with no fighting, without a single drop of blood.

    7. If we cannot do this, I am affraid, Meles will keep on riding on us until Jesus comes. I suggest brother Ayal sew to revisit your plan because Meles is destroying our house, we can join him to destroy it completely. We have to stop the destruction of our country by planning and uniting togetether by setting oursevles like ordinary citizens and by allowing able, competent, non rent seeking, meritours and selfless community civil leaders. We cannot keep on insulting each other. We must have one national agenda. the national agenda must be an Ethiopia where the law is above anyone and everyone is under the law, not less or more than that. That is what Ethiopia needs. Ethiopian and Ethiopians do not need factions of any kind. Ethiopian needs Utopian Ethiopian law that is universal to Ethiopian. This is the only way to guarantee dignity to every Ethiopian. Otherwise, everyone who come to power is always right and keep on terrorizing citizens. I hope this makes sense.

  21. Walk in the victims shoes on

    Atakilti,
    Firstly, the current regime is much, much worse than the despicable derg by every measure.
    Secondly, Eskindir is one of the tens of thousands innocent Ethiopian fathers who are thrown in jail and tortured leaving the burdens on the mothers without resources of any kind, and who knows some might not have mothers at all. Meles is one of the richest people in Ethiopia and doesn’t give a care in the world to what happens to all Ethiopians and especially, to the innocent prisoners’ spouses, children, parents, grandparents and their siblings, as long as the money flow continues into his bank accounts. My friend, not only the actual prisoners, millions of Ethiopians are affected seeing innocent Ethiopians thrown in prison and by over all lack of justice in Ethiopia. Meles is and always be one of the most evil man that has ever been born in Ethiopia that has caused so much bloodshed, robbery and destroying Ethiopia one acre at a time.
    I appreciate that you try to walk in Eskinder’s shoes as a father, now I beg you to walk in the shoes of the parents whose children have been locked up and even murdered by the TPLF regime.

  22. Mr. Silence if you were those farmers who has to go through the inquisitions of an agent disguised as a journalist then you might understand the substance of the point mentioned by Aha! I however doubt it if you will get what it means to be in such a situation as those farmers were… it is not time for niceties and some form of Hippocratic and gentle words. Go and see how woyane agents behave and mishandle our people whom they see as threatening to their masters right at this moment while you are talking about how we should behave towards turncoats. Go and find out what they do to people whose crime was asking their basic human rights and got beaten, humiliated and imprisoned without any legal assistance.
    We are simple people who are tired of those sophisticated intellectual finites’ Sir, if that is what you mean.
    We will now call a spade a spade, a woyane a woyane, a turncoat a turncoat, an opportunist an opportunist, a traitor a traitor, an agent an agent, an assassin an assassin….. I might not be a very learned man with a Harvard degree. However, I guarantee you hundred percent that I love my country and my people the most. So do all those patriots who fall for the freedom of our county.
    Do you know Mr. Silence sir that it was simple peasants who left their farming, loved family, and went to war to defend our Flag & country? What do you say to a “States man” who calls our FLAG a piece of CHERK? Go Mr. Silence sir to this person and teach him mannerism please not us!
    Do not forget that those patriots were not learned men and they were not nice to their enemies either. They called the invader AMEDAM SOLDATO. Their agents BANDAS and ASKARIS. Mr. Silence sir, I guarantee you again; you cannot silence us with your well-groomed and “sophisticated” finery! We are here to break taboos sir. Taboos that surround fake “states men” “journalists” “teachers of mannerism” and and…
    Do not come here with garbage talking as how we should behave when we see traitors Mr. Silence. You seem to be at the end of your wits and this is supposed to be the new way of teaching us on how to be controlled? The yilungita way… However, I say one last thing Sir, please go to your woyanes, and teach them on how to behave.. Not us Sir Mr. Silence.. moreover, try to read Aha’s comment a couple of times sir and you will get it if you try it!
    God be with Ethiopia!

    To: ‘Walk in the victims’

    I can not believe you said what you said!! No one, I say, no one will agree with your claim that the Derg regime is much better than the current government. Those survivors and families of the victims of the Derg atrocities are hopping mad at you right now. The only person who will agree with you is that ghoulish dictator Isaias in Asmara who unlike the Derg was denied victory in his futile war he declared on our country. Emotion should not be the deciding factor in our conclusions. Even those knuckleheads around EPRP will not agree with you at all. You are saying Mussolini is better than George Bush. I know what is bothering you or hampering your perfectly sane mind. You just don’t like us Tigrayans. That is in this day and age of Obama where you can’t be presupposional about people based on their ethnicity. I have read articles on some of the websites which are filled with bigotry and so much hate toward us Tigrayans. Some of them even call us with such derogatory terms as ‘Ag’mes’. I know that is a name of a region in Tigray but it has been used by racist Eritreans and others as denigrative term to describe my people. It is worse than a white man calling a black man a ‘ni,,er’. I am not saying the current regime is perfect but I believe it has done a lot good for the people. There is nothing wrong with making the oppressed nations and nationalities feel at home and proud of their heritage. Their children are able to get schooling in their mother tongues. Amharic language was made a national working medium not by forceful imposition by voluntary concession. That is without a single bullet fired. If we become civil in our discussion we should throw our emotions out the window and start writing down the facts both good and bad. Otherwise, our discussion will not make any headway.

    Now I want to ask you a few questions I asked another person this week on this website”

    1) Lets say the current regime falls today. Do you think there is a strong and united political organization here or over there that can come in and run on landing? I am asking you to name one and explain it strength organization wise.
    2) What should be done to the current organizations back home that are part of the governing party? I mean TPLF, OPDO, ANDM, Afar/Somali fronts, Southern Peoples Party and Benishangul Gumuz Organization.
    3) Will the new government respond positively to the demands of independent-seeking fronts such as OLF and ONLF?
    I want you to be specific in your answers and avoid dwelling too much on the nature of my questions. Like I said before I have nothing to hide. Atakilti is my name and the product of Ethiopia by way of Tigray.

  24. Gezahee,

    I think you should be one of those coordinators, heck more than coordinator! Thanks for enlightened suggestion. We need people like you.

  25. The captain on

    Boycotting on Ethiopian airlines is a wrong idea. It survived three different goverments and still growing fast. It is the property of all ethiopians, not for a particular goverment. Thousands of Ethiopians are dependant on their company. It will survive what ever regime come to power.
